Hey there little buddy!
You’ll be here in 40 days! Can you believe it? The time felt so slow as it passed- I mean your dad hasn’t had a beer in 7 months! On the other hand though, you’re almost here now, and it seems like just yesterday I found out you were coming and headed out to Chick-fil-a to grab mom a snack.
We’ve worked on your room, gathered you 100’s of outfits, diapers, found your Daycare, chose you a pediatrician, went to countless baby doctor appointments, toured the hospital where you will be born, and now.. after about 240 days getting ready.. you are 40 days away. Insane. And your dad couldn’t be more excited or proud.
You and mom have developed a special relationship. It seems like she already knows you. When we are sitting on the couch watching tv she often can be heard laughing at your funny movements or talking to you. Her newest thing is saying things to you like “what are you doing silly” or “really dude? You have to put your butt there?” I’m actually kind of jealous.
This morning we were on a walk and I asked mom, “do you feel like you already know our baby?” She replied, “yes! He gets hungry at 1pm. He loves oranges. He likes to push his butt out. He’s active in the early morning.” She went on for a while and it was really cute. She doesn’t know it, but she was glowing. So excited and in love with you already. She was proud of you little man.
Today I ordered a giant stork for the yard. I want to shout from the mountaintops when you are born, so this was the next best thing. Some company is going to deliver a 6 foot tall stork that will proudly announce you to the neighborhood for a week after you are born. I’ll make sure you have lots of photos.
Daddy got promoted at work- but you don’t care about that, so I’ll spare you the details. Just know that I love you and I work as hard as I do for you and mom. (And hopefully your brothers and sisters by the time you are old enough to read this.)
Moms almost home and she is hungry and tired. I’m making homemade pizza and I have to get back to it.
Hope you are having a good day in moms tummy. Only 39 of those left little dude.
